If you’re doing h.264 or h.265 encoding with Adobe Premiere/Media Encoder/After Effects, then those are encoders that take advantage of more cores (and OpenGL sees multiprocessors just as more cores).
If you want to shop around for an i7 workstation, then I would recommend Xi Computer: they offer i7/i9 workstations with Nvidia Quadro cards. I don’t have direct experience with the HP workstations you’re looking at, but I did have a mobile workstation from them. Their support seemed good. I do know film/FX houses use the workstations you are looking at, so they are well regarded. The only company I’ve had terrible experience from is Alienware.
So is it better to have 2 Intel® Xeon® Silver 4114 Processor (2.2 GHz, up to 3 GHz w/Turbo Boost, 13.75 MB cache, 2400MHz, 10 core) or one Intel® Xeon® Gold 6132 Processor (2.6 GHz, up to 3.7 GHz w/Turbo Boost, 19.25 MB cache, 2666MHz, 14 core)?
